We just returned from a trip to Sicily and Sardinia. The weather was perfect, we got lots of beach time, and had some great meals along the way. Here are some of my favorites.

Antipasto Palermo

Il Salumaio di Santamarina

We had dinner in this restaurant when we visited in May 2022 and I had been craving this antipasti ever since then. It was just as delicious as I remembered. The restaurant is off of the main pedestrian street and a great spot for dinner.

Address: Via del Celso, 3, 90134 Palermo PA, Italy

Fettuccine Mazara

Ristorantino Pizzeria Leone

I had never had Fettuccine Mazara before, but I will be making this dish at home in an effort to recreate what Ristorantino Pizzeria Leone did well. The fettuccine is tossed with shrimp, cherry tomatoes, and pistachios. Delicious in its simplicity.

Address: Via Cavour, 21, 90133 Palermo PA, Italy

Poke Beach

Jana’s Beach

Jana’s Beach was a short walk along the water from our hotel (La Villa del Re). We wanted lunch and were happy to find something other than Italian food. The Poke Beach bowl had tuna, salmon, avocado, mango, and onion over rice. It was fresh and just what I was craving.

Address: Località Santa Giusta, 09040 Castiadas CA, Italy

L'Aragosta Lobster


L'Aragosta Seafood


We had some of the most delicious seafood at L’Aragosta. My husband deemed this his favorite meal of the trip. Both of these courses were mine. I started with the Lobster and Mussel Soup and followed it up with the Mixed Grilled Fish. My seafood feast was all fresh and flavorful. The restaurant also has the most charming patio filled with flowers.

Address: Via C.Colombo, 20, 09043 Costa Rei CA, Italy

Blu Cobalto Fish

Blu Cobalto

This restaurant is known for its Neapolitan-style pizza, but Blu Cobalto‘s seafood is equally delicious. We ordered the catch of the day (Sea Bream). The fish was filleted tableside and was prepared perfectly. The delicate white flesh had so much flavor and our server did a great job deboning and serving it to us.

Address: Via Cala Battistoni, snc, 07021 Baja Sardinia SS, Italy


JBeach Bar & Restaurant

We had another great al fresco, beachside lunch after soaking in the sun. JBeach Bar & Restaurant served up this delicious tuna dish. It was prepared rare (my favorite) and the flavors were outstanding. If you find yourself at Spiaggia di Razza di Junco, take the time for lunch here.

Address: Cala Juncu, 07026 Olbia SS, Italy

La Pasqualina

La Pasqualina – Porto Cervo

After dreaming about what life would be like on a mega yacht, we stopped at La Pasqualina for some gelato. We devoured the Boschetto and the Pasqualina. Both were packed with nuts, biscotti, whipped cream, and of course a few flavors of gelato.

Address: via Aga Khan, 1, 07021 Porto Cervo SS, Italy

While we ate our way across both islands, we stayed at five hotels including: Four Points by Sheraton Catania Hotel & Conference Center (review here), Susafa (review here), Alma Hotel (review here), La Villa del Re (review here), and 7Pines Resort Sardinia – Destination by Hyatt (review here). We had some great stays and these meals perfectly complemented them.

Anthony’s Take: If you need me, I’ll be on the Peloton. These are some of my favorite dishes from the trip, but you’ll find delicious food just about everywhere you look.
